The Pennine Way is one of Britain’s best known and toughest long distance hiking routes. It stretches 429 km from the Peak District, through the Pennines and Yorkshire Dales, up to Northumberland and across the Scottish border. I recently walked the first two days of this route, 45 km from Edale to Marsden. Although it is not cycling, these demanding weekend microadventures that I have been doing with my mates is all part of my preparation for the upcoming cycling trip. By challenging myself both physically and mentally, I’m testing my limits and building up my stamina.
